Soon. Sounds like you have already talked with cardiologist who should have given you this information. Takotsubo cm resolves on its own over about 1 month once initiating factors are resolved. Typical treatment does not include pain control per se, but should be considered as a way to decrease catecholamine release. Please discuss with your doc..
Unknown. Moist patientes imporved within 4-6 weeks of diagnosis. However, some may take longer. Important to minimize stress and keep follow up appointments as scheduled.
Takosubu. Give it three months.
